Coming This October to Classic-Horror.com

We have two big pieces of news -- one good, one not-so-good -- to announce for October. First the good news: we're preparing to unleash an all-new, all-terrifying iteration of our annual review marathon. Get ready for Shocktober: Staff Screams! The Classic-Horror.com reviewing team has been given free reign to choose the films they want to review for you this year, and we have some great ones on tap, including The Most Dangerous Game, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Virgin Spring, Dr. Terror's House of Horrors, The Face of Fu Manchu, The Sorcerers, and more! We'll be posting a new review every weekday throughout the month of October, plus one on Halloween, so keep your browser pointed at Classic-Horror.com.

Now for the less-awesome news. After October, we'll be going on hiatus for six months. I've been working on Classic-Horror for ten years with very few vacations. I need some time to reset, rethink, and work on some other projects, including a book on horror that I've been toying with for the past few years. But do not fear (much) -- we won't completely abandon you. The plan is to post a review a month during our off-time, including contributions from guest writers from some very awesome horror blogs whom I cannot announce just yet. Plus, when we do come back in May 2010, we'll be stronger than ever.
